Nice fish glad that you put her back. So close kinda like shooting that big buck that scores in the high 160's and misses that 170 net.
I had my best at 30.5 by tape and she had just spawned the night before and boggaed at 9.25. You always dream about that 30+ and 10 plus. That is what keeps us out there. Looking and dreaming and wondered just how big the big ones were that did not make it to the boga.
I got my pxs gave her a kiss and revived her a minute and let her eased her back into the water and wondering what she would weighed if had caught her the day before.
Good luck and stay with looking for that "book" fish.
Tobin has great dvd's heck I took them with me in November the weekend of the super moon and managed to watch all of them while hunting it was so slow. Got a fair 140 class 8 point but it was SLOW hunting and great movie time with a dvd player and ear plug I was able to hunt and watch dvds.
Amazing what you see and pick up each time you watch them.
